LARGEST TRUNK IN THE INDUSTRY.
Life doesn’t stand still. That’s why you need the MOST FLEXIBLE VEHICLE OUT
01 THERE.1 And with the removable three-piece cargo cover, lockable top-box storage,
and the LARGEST TRUNK IN THE INDUSTRY,2 Avalanche delivers. With the Midgate
upright, Avalanche has the look and feel of an UPSCALE SUV. And when you lower
the Midgate entirely, you have the capability of a FULL-SIZE PICKUP with an 8' 2"
cargo box. The cargo box measures 50 inches at its widest point, allowing you to carry
both large and small cargo, and it also has a light on the driver side — located inside the
top-box storage — that helps you see what you want to retrieve.
03 01 With the 60/40 split-folding rear-bench seatback and Midgate upright, Avalanche can be configured
as a five- or six-passenger 4 SUV.
02 To begin converting Avalanche from an SUV to a pickup, simply lower the 60/40 split-folding bench
seat. You can also stow the rear window inside the Midgate.
03 To utilize the full length of the cargo box, just lower the Midgate for a completely secured cargo area
(when the three-piece cargo cover and rear window are in place).
04 To complete the transformation, remove the rear window and three-piece cargo cover and lower the
04 tailgate to transport items such as a small ATV.
